Growing up, my family had a huge fish tank in our office that I would sit in front of for hours like it was a television set.
First of all, let's wish a happy 25th birthday to the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, which will...
A month ago, we discussed the world’s first 3D-printed jet engine from Australia’s Monash...
The Blue Angels are generally regarded as some of the most talented and esteemed pilots in the world.
Meet Paul Jerome Barina, a student at Ohio University working on a Masters of Science in Industrial & Systems Engineering.
Though electric vehicles are a common topic on technology and consumer blogs, rarely do your hear the technology partnered with the word Antarctica. But, for scientists who live and work there, it’s an interesting exploration into what types of vehicles are ideal....
Giant spiders in space may sound like the beginning of an epic sci-fi horror book, but the real purpose of these nightmare-come-to-life is a little less sinister.
Meet Jasen Massey. He has a B.S in Physics from Illinois State University and is working on an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His main area of focus is fluids/heat transfer and robotics.
There has been a lot of enthusiasm and quite a bit of criticism when it comes to self-driving cars. They’ve proven themselves capable on shorter trips, but Delphi has undertaken a whole other challenge. An across-the-country road trip....
The characteristic that I love the most about the Raspberry Pi 2 was actually the one that made this competition so difficult to judge. The fact that people of ages and experience can use the board for so many different applications and purposes is inspiring, but also a little daunting for judging.
Restocking your pantry might soon be as easy as pressing a button. Seriously, push the button and presto, chango, your favorite toilet paper arrives in the mail. Amazon's newest release is the Amazon Dash button.
Meet Polina Brodsky,Technical Coordinator, Buckeye Current Racing: Electric motorcycle at Ohio State. She was part of the team that has showcased electric motorcycles at the Isle of Man racing competition....
It seems like everyone is trying to figure out how to get kids in STEM and how to keep them there. There is a particular interest in increasing the number of women in STEM professions...
With the ink still drying on the FAAs newest drone regulations, which include requiring the pilots to be licensed and the drones to always be in line sight of the pilot and a spotter, Amazon has taken off for the Great White North. And they’re taking their drones with them....
Picture this. It's several (decades/centuries) in the future. All food is organically harvested in BioDomes, no one has driven a car in 20 years and Robot Madonna is still cranking out the tunes.
The 1960s was arguably the most fascinating time in the world of space. Sputnik had been launched just a few years prior and the entire decade ended with the first moon landing. So what happened?
Meet Brian Scharles Jr, Computer Engineer Intern at Traffic and Parking Control Co., and Computer Engineering student at Milwaukee School of Engineering.
I'm a big fan of the Raspberry Pi. Newark Element14 was nice enough to send me one a while back and once I figured out what it was, I was absolutely fascinated by the idea that it's basically a grown-up(ish) version of a super sweet building toy.
Now here’s a weapon I can almost guarantee that you’ve seen more at the local multiplex than in someone’s backyard. Its creators describe the XM42 as the “world’s first fully handheld, grab and go portable flamethrower on the market.”
Though the Step In Time dance from Mary Poppins is not longer an accurate depiction of the world above us, roof tops still play an interesting role in society.
Watching the FAA try and figure out how to regulate drones is sort of like watching a newborn foal figure out how to walk.
Meet Mary Scherer, Ohio State sophomore in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Engineers for Community Service (ECOS) Project Team Leader, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Secretary
We’ve all heard of regenerative-braking, where kinetic energy from brakes is captured and returned to the vehicle’s batteries. Most of the popular hybrid and pure electric vehicles like the Prius, Tesla Roadster, and Chevy Volt use some form of regenerative breaking....
Most readers of a certain age group--before the game was banned because someone knew someone who had their eye ripped out by a ball--will recall with a mixture of fear and excitement the experiences of playing dodge ball in gym class.
News outlets everywhere have been drooling over the idea of the Mars One mission, despite a few massive holes--financial and technological--in the plan, but it's always interesting to read how die-hard space fans feel about it.
The CV-22 Osprey is arguably one of the coolest aircraft around.
Meet Ishmeet Grewal, a Junior Computer Science and Engineering Student at The Ohio State University.
Solar and wind often dominate the alternative energy conversation, but a rarely discussed, though increasingly popular, third option exists in gathering energy from the tides. Among its many attributes, tidal power or marine and hydrokinetic power (MKP) is cyclical....
